Pumpkin Spice Energy Bites

Hello friends! I’ve been able to spend some more time in the kitchen because of some changes in my work schedule. My full time maternity leave contract ended a few weeks ago. Initially, I didn’t know what to do with myself during all of this extra free time (I am lost without a routine)! However after escaping for a short vacation (we flew to California and drove the coast from LA to San Fran!)

The Battle of the Milks

The interest in non-dairy milks has sky rocketed. This is for a variety of reasons. Choosing the best milk or plant-based milk can be challenging, with the wide variety of options on the market. While all types of milk are equivalent when it comes to calcium and vitamin D, let me help you compare their nutritional content and outline their respective controversies.

Barley Lentil Apple Salad

A omnivore-approved!! My boyfriend (who enjoys both meat and vegetarian meals) states that this salad is a favourite of his – not only for it’s delicious taste but for how hearty it is! Let’s give thanks to the satiating power of a few nutrient-rich vegetarian ingredients – lentils, barley, almonds, apples and leafy greens! I love how simple and easy this is to make. A summer must-try!

Super Seed Smoothie Bowl

A smoothie is a typical breakfast for me. However sometimes I find that I need a small mid-morning snack to tie me over until lunch, after a breakfast smoothie. If you are finding a smoothie doesn’t quite tie you over until lunch, you definitely should try out this smoothie bowl – a smoothie with a hearty kick! The addition of nuts and seeds add fibre, fat and PROTEIN to your typical smoothie. The smoothie itself is thicker than your typical smoothie that you’d drink through a straw. It’s also vegan and gluten-free. Give it a try!
